    CHS Develops New Premium Diesel Fuels

    The products improve fuel efficiency by as much as 5 percent over standard diesel.

    INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, Minn. -- CHS Inc., developed new Cenex Roadmaster XL and Ruby Fieldmaster Premium Diesel Fuels to meet the demands of existing engines and new engine technologies, TruckingInfo.com reported.

    "The premium diesel fuels have not only been proven to deliver increased efficiencies, but they also extend the life of fuel injectors and protect fuel pumps from wear," Chad Pistulka, CHS product manager, said in the report.

    CHS designed the fuels for today's new engines, which operate under higher temperatures and pressures. The fuels feature specialized detergents, injection stabilizers, demulsifiers and corrosion inhibitors, which deliver benefits over standard diesel fuel, such as improved fuel efficiency by as much as 5 percent, according to the company.

    Compared to standard diesel fuels, CHS said its new products improve lubricity by 10 to 15 percent; boost engine power by as much as 4.5 percent; can extend the lifecycle of injectors and fuel pumps; and reduce downtime and repair costs.

    "We've seen an 8 percent to 10 percent increase in fuel economy," Dave Millar, a fleet owner based in Edgerton, Wis., said in the TruckingInfo.com report. "It's very hard to do anything in your operation where you see that kind of return."
